The purpose of this paper is to show how key concepts from control theory, game theory, and mean field theory can be exploited to design joint control-allocation policies in cognitive wireless networks. One of the key features of the proposed approach is that transmitters (which are assumed to be cognitive and autonomous decisionally speaking) have a certain knowledge of the channel evolution law and want to reach a certain transmission rate target while minimizing the energy consumed by the power supply and not the one corresponding to radio-frequency signals (which is known to be important to design green wireless networks).
